known as doma, first passed by congress and signed by president clinton in 1996 is being challenged at the supreme court. >> it's being asked to decide there whether or not congress can pass a law that treats same-sex couples who are already married under the laws of their state different from opposite section sex couples. >> reporter: defenders of the law say congress has as much right as the states to make its own definition of marriage. >> doma is important because congress said it was important. i mean we sent our elected representatives to washington, d.c. and they chose to say that marriage is one man and one woman for purposes of federal law. >> reporter: conservatives say the founding fathers never contemplated gay marriage. >> because it's clearly not what anyone understood as marriage at the time of the framing of the constitution. >> reporter: still, same-sex families pay taxes and don't get the same benefits and the issue with doma really gets complicated if they have children who are also excluded from benefits. >> when we have kids i would like them to be born in a pos
somebody like hillary clinton. >> rand paul is so interesting. i went down to bowling green, kentucky and spent a few days with him when he was running in 2008. you talk to him on some issues back then, particularly on issues of foreign affairs. there he was at the time saying america has to look at itself to try to understand the genesis of the attacks of 9/11. of course he wasn't excusing them, but he was suggesting there was a role in america's foreign policy. he wants america to pull back. he pointed to a split within the republican party on national security before almost anybody else did. he really actually outlined some of the divisions. when you look at his policies what he stands for, abolishing the departments of education, commerce, trade, the federal reserve. i think when he gets more out there in the public, when he's not just giving a talk at cpac, i just think that what he says is going to be too extreme for members of the republican party who support still the hawkish line of american involvement in the world and i think for clearly when he gets into i think into middl
announcement yesterday from former secretary of state hillary clinton in a video that she prepared for hrc, the human rights campaign. >> i suppose marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support personally and as a matter of policy and law embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lbgt americans and all americans. >> bill: so last week it was senator rob portman because his son came out to him as a gay man. this week it is hillary clinton, chelsea is not even a lesbian. >> can you believe it? >> bill: what is going on. >> she didn't even have to have a gay child to be for marriage equality. i don't know what is going on this week. certainly it was expected that the former secretary would support marriage equality. you remember when new york was debating marriage she publicly endorsed that effort. but it's a big, big deal because it heats the fire of 2016 speculation but also because she has kind of come full circle like a lot of lawmakers. when she ran in 2008 she only supported gay marriage, and now she's there where most americans convincin
. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and
that hillary clinton is publicly supporting same-sex marriage. of course, her husband, former president bill clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to
secretary of state hillary clinton getting on the right side of history in her view and the view of her party coming up with a video changing the clinton view on doma and in the republican party, we're hearing from all across the spectrum that regardless of what the supreme court does the party needs to have a more libertarian view on this. republicans are telling us it would be a huge help with fund-raising especially in the big states of new york, california, and florida. if the republican party were to be more open on this. and people are telling us that investors don't want to invest what they think losing national elections which could continue to be the case if republicans stay very narrow on this issue. republicans i talked to even extremely conservative ones, very christian conservative republicans are telling me the polls they have seen in the last couple of weeks have been eye-opening, showing not only that young people very heavily in favor of gay marriage, but if you extrapolate that a little bit in just 10, 20 years, this is going to be 70/30 issue that republicans are goin
the incident. i myself was involved in that. secretary of state hillary clinton was heavily involved in it. secretary of state kerry has been involved. the fact is, of course, that the difference between israel and turkey benefitted neither country. and it was -- to some extent, it should have been resolved earlier, but the fact is it's done now and hopefully they will rebuild the good relationship that they had, which will be beneficial to both and to us in the region. >> you mentioned iran being a top of conversation, but at almost every stop, every discussion with a leader, the the president was riddled with questions about syria. syria kept coming up. the president made it clear the u.s. has provided a lot of humanitarian aid and will continue to do so, but also said, and i'm quoting loosely, assad will go. it's not an issue of if but when. how important is it for the president to sound so certain on that, especially while in the region? >> well, of course, as you know, there's turbulence throughout the region arising out of the situation in syria. just today the press reports that the

that is to have the kind of balance that we had, frankly, at the end of president clinton's two terms in office where you had a balance between the investment of the revenues you're putting into the system and, secondly, that you had the spending levels which we have to bring down to get to that level. so that kind of balance is the only way to go. we have to do two things very well, create jobs and move the economy forward, that's first. that's first priority. and, second, make agreements that will lead to spending cuts over the next ten years and have those cuts go into effect in a couple of years, not right away. that's why we deal with the sequestration in our budget so we can take that, reverse that, and not have the adverse impact that we're already beginning to see. >> senator bob casey, improse sif, sir, given your all-nighter. i applaud you. really good. i don't know how you could stay awake and sound great and make good sense so thank you so much. >>> frustration and anger in chicago after the city announces plans to close more than 50 public schools. principals, teachers, families al

, that reagan laid for the incredible ground work of the economy in the 1980's and 1990's. clinton helped to some extent, ut then he created and repealed glass-steagall, and everybody blames it on george bush. the conservatives who didn't do much for the letter peace, we tried to expand under karl rove, the voting process, and giving more to hispanic community, and we didn't get one increase in vote in that eight-year period so. what makes you think that we're going to give amnesty and all the set get a bunch of votes? it's fraud, and it's another really ploy by the democratic party to keep promising and benefits to everybody who will vote for them no matter what. scommoip we're going to talk about immigration in our next segment of the "washington journal" today. but we still have about five minutes left in this segment, if you want to call in to give us your take on this growth and opportunities report that was released today, or if you think hanges in the republican debates would have helped republicans in the 2012 election. a couple of other stories to point out, the front page of the

months. you can see the administration is not cooperating. secretary clinton, did she even go visit the wounded out at bethesda? you need subpoena power really to protect the federal employees. their careers are on the line. if you're 50 years old, you don't want to get across the bricks with your boss and lose your jobs with maybe kids in college, have a mortgage. so you will have to have a select committee. you will have to subpoena them. this can be done in private. otherwise the american people will never know. bill: let me cut right to this now. you mentioned cover-up. what are they trying to cover up? >> well i think that is what the select committee will find out. what happened that day? why did it take so long? are we not interviewing? why did secretary clinton when she talked about the four people who were heroes who died, why did she not mention those who were wounded? we have an obligation to them. we should honor them. we should thank them. there are more questions out here than there are answers. bill: another question for you then. the house committee has subpoena powe
. here's the problem. there's a survey done during the clinton administration that claims 36% of gun transfers were done without a background. the president took the survey, rounded up, that the big problem is changing the term transfer. there's a big difference between god purchase. the vast majority of these transfers are within inheritance. i don't think it would've had quite the bite of the president said look, there's too many pairing given a gun to their kid it's not going through the proper regulation. it's not as scary as saying 40% of gun sales are going ahead. and this survey was done between november 9th 291 and december december 1994. it only involves 251 individuals , that's the other problem is most of the survey was done before it even went into effect. this survey is going all the way back to 1991. there's other problems i could point out with this, britishers ridley misleading. these are not going -- they would say about 13.3% and that's even though most of his theater time is done before you had the brady act going into effect. even 13.3% is much too high because gu
clinton did with aid to families with dependent children. so you have this reform of entitlements, reform of the various welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25%, the bottom rate to 10%. so you have two rates, 10 and 25. now we go from 10 up to 44 these days. and the corporate rate, which is 35% right now, the average in europe is 25. so when we compete internationally, we've hobbled ourselves because we tax our companies, our manufacturing companies more harshly than they do theirs. he wants to take that rate to 25 so it's close, so it's at the european average. now, i'd rather be better than europe. the canadians are about 17%. i prefer the canadian rate than the european average. so the republicans and democrats in their two budgets really show who they are. now, there's also a third budget which is the progressive budget which is the more liberal democrats, and they do massive new taxes on top of the ones i discussed plus massive new spending. so you have a sense of there's some democrats who want to go even further into big government than patty murra
clinton and the democrats with some help from some republicans had put in place, they shredded it under george bush by giving tax breaks to the wealthiest, putting two wars on the credit card, a prescription drug plan that didn't allow medicare to negotiate for lower prices, and the deficit went wild. and it didn't even make sense from an -- i am an old -- i am old. i'm an old economics major, and i remember the basics. you know, you don't go into such deep, deep debt because if there is a recession, you can't really help spend your way out of it, and what happened is when president obama got elected, he faced the worst deficit crisis. that deficit went up to well over a trillion. he's gotten it back to $850 billion. it's still too high, but the fact is i never heard a word from my really good friends on the other side of the aisle. when they were racking up those deficits. oh, this supply-side stuff is going to be great. well, it wasn't great, it wasn't good, and i'm glad that this budget takes us back to the notion in the clinton years which is you have a balanced approach between rev
act known as doma first passed by congress and signed by president clinton in 1996 is being challenged at the supreme court. >> being asked to decide there. whether or not congress can pass a law that treats same-sex couples who are already married under the laws of their state different from opposite sex couples. >> reporter: defenders of the law say congress has as much right as the states to make its own definition of marriage. >> doma is important because congress said it was important. we sent our elected representatives to washington, d.c., and they chose to say that marriage is one man and one woman for federal law. >> reporter: conservatives say the founding fathers never contemplated gay marriage. >> it's clearly not what anyone understood as marriage at the time of the framing of the constitution. >> reporter: still, same-sex family as pay taxes and don't get the same benefits. the issue with doma gets complicated if they have children who are also excluded from benefits. >> when we have kid, i would like them to be born in a post-doma united states. >> reporter: ironically,
president clinton signed in 1996 which bans federal marry i marital bs for same sex couples legally married in their states. you said that states have the right to de. to the is conservative isn't marriage a state issue and federal interferences wouldn't that be unconstitutional? >> i don't think so and neither did a democratic president. a lot of people are changing their minds because there has been a full court blitz by the popular culture by elites, by all kinds of folks to intimidate and cower people and no longer defend marriage as being between a man and a woman. >> chris. >> chris: go ahead, nicolle. >> chris, chris, the biggest problem that mr. bauer faces not just this morning but moving forward is that more than 65% of his own base self-describing evangelical christians under the age of 33 support marriage eequality. 80% of people in this country right, left, democrat, republican, man, woman, support marriage equality. more than 60% of all americans everyone supports marriage equality. and that very same activist court that he railed against with such hostility this morning alway
be allowed. we've seen the president, obama change his mind. president clinton changed his mind. hillary rodham clinton came out and spoke about it. republican rob portman spoke about it. and i think, wolf, there's a question here about whether this shift in public opinion is actually going to affect the supreme court. those justices sitting on the bench. when you talk to both sides of the argument, one side says, the side that's for same sex marriage, will say, you know, maybe it will help us because the court won't think it's such a heavy lift to rule in favor of same sex marriage. they won't be going against public opinion and in the way they were against interracial marriage, for example. or on the other side, they say the court will also say, look. it's proceeding in the states. you know, you now have eight or nine states who have approved same sex marriage. public opinion is shifting. let it play out with the voters and the court's not the place to do it. >> they're very conservative ideas at play here, too. back in 1996 when the court passed the defense of marriage act a lot of pe
this as good as anybody, and my judgment president clinton did this remarkably well. i think president obama is getting better. today, he's meeting with 13 senators at the jefferson hotel in washington. maybe that will help our conference move along. but it is -- it is tough because -- i want to mention one other thing. it is tough because it is harder to deal with the congress and sometimes it is unpleasant to deal with the congress. but there is no other choice. the president must engage and it is a learning experience. one other issues i wanted to raise quickly. another factor and charlly talked about this. -- charlie talked about this. it was easier to work together. look at what they are dealing with, sequester, cutting, how do we cut medicare? when are we going to cut social security? how do we get the budget down? >> these what i call tough -- almost impossiblely difficult positions to take. in an environment where everything is reducing, cutting, it is not natch for people to enjoy doing the job under those circumstances. they don't feel positive to each other and friendly to reach o
in the states. it took a couple times to get but newt gingrich finally got bill clinton to sign it into law. when ronald reagan was tnt president but the governor of california and tax reform happened in that state. when ronald reagan was the president and signed the law that slashed marginal tax breaks. real reform happened in the states. this was mentioned yesterday, in america there are 30 states that are republican governors and nearly as many that have republican legislatures. [applause] that's the good news. the good news is we have success and it is happening in our states and we can learn from that to tell our friends in washington how to move forward. in the state, to be successful we have to optimistic, relevant, and we have to be courageous. rest me talk to you about those three things. when it talks about being inspirational and optimistic is one thing that is interesting, when i first ran for gofer. when i say first, because who would have v thought i would be elected twice in the same term. [laughter] i conducted a job interview. i interviewed the people of my state to be thei
in 1997 when, under president clinton, we all worked together and balanced the budget for the first time in 30 years. came into the senate in 2001. we were debating the largest budget budget surplus projected in the history of the country. that's where we were. and the question was, what kind of economic policies, what kinds of approaches would we put in place to be able to manage that fact that we had the largest budget surplus projected in the history of the country. and there were two proposals put forward at that time. and we and when the look at the way the debt was going in 2001, it's amazing, if we had taken a different track than what happened. i remember as a new member, a new democrat that our leader on our side of the aisle, senator conrad, came forward with a proposal that i felt was eminently reasonable. he said, why don't we take that budget surplus projected explus divide it into third -- projected budget surplus and divide it into their. a third of it for strategic tax cuts to grow the economy, a third of it for strategic investments in education and science, r&d, you kno
went to see bill clinton speak. found out for sure i was pregnant for the first time at a doctor's office in the creaky downtown. i was just in the area two weeks ago to celebrate my daughter's birthday with old neighbors and friends. what you might be struck by most if you were to visit is how genuine how kind, how open, how sincere. that's what struck me. in fact, this town is like your hometown, this high school is like your high school. something here went horribly wrong and it could go horribly wrong where you live too. yesterday i saw this headline -- another football player accused of rape. another community blaming the victim. this isn't a football sure, not a social media issue, it's an american issue, an-mile-an-hour issue that in 2013 we still live in a country where too many tolerate blaming the rape victim and calling her a whore, where a boys will be boys attitude about rape and a wink and nod for covering up for men in positions in power. folks, you and i own this culture. we can't allow these attitudes to persist. if we do, the circle of culpability radiating out

-door speech to donors, politicians and media, bill clinton spoke about gun owners. a lot of these people, all they have as their hunting and their fishing, or they have been listening to this stuff for so long that they believe it, and we remember barack obama saying "it is not surprising they get bitter. they cling to guns or religion or cult the arrogance of their superiority reminds us that they do not give us right. we grant them power. they do not make us free. we are free already. as long as we have the second amendment, we always will be. we are america, and our politicians are only as powerful as we, the people, allow them to be. the nra ad -- philip rucker, how effective is the nra message right now? guest: a message like that is effective with the base of the nra and many americans that live in some of these dates -- it's dates -- states. you play and add like that in ,est virginia, north carolina north dakota, and it resonates. it is a message about the elite in washington and san francisco, which is a reference to nancy pelosi, the democratic leaders in the house, and it is really
. my devotion to law and human rights and the guiding principles of my faith. host: hillary clinton taking up two cases on that. speaking of the supreme court, there's a "washington post" this morning. justices appear divided on an arizona law the federal registration form that congress does states the most accepting views require thoonl they swear under oath that they are a citizen but applicants require additional proof and the u.s. court of appeals for the ninth circuit ruled against the state saying arizona could not add requirements to the federal law. still a ruling for arizona could to door for states to add requirements to the federal registration form and the issue seemed to split the court along familiar eye logical lines. as we told you president obama heads to israel tonight and here's "the new york times," ama and in israel seeking to seek common ground with bring u and how to financial stability to a government crippled by international aid shortfalls and the obama administration last month unfroze hundreds of millions in assistance to the overnment of president mahmo
with john endingler, welfare reform happened in the states. newt gingrich finally got bill clinton to sign it into law a little bit later. you go all the way back to the early 970s when ronald reagan wasn't the president, but the governor of california, and tax reform happened in that state. and it wasn't until later, ironically back in california, when ronald reagan as the president signed into raw the economic recovery -- into law the economic recovery act. real reform happened in the states. as was mentioned yesterday, there are now in america some 30 states that have republican governors and nearly as many that have republican legislatures. [applause] and so that's the good news. the good news is we have success, and it's happening in our states, and we can learn from that to tell our friends and our colleagues in washington how to move forward. because, you see, in the states to be successful we have to be optimistic. we have to be relevant. and most importantly, we have to be courageous. let me talk to you a little bit about each of those three things. you see, when it talks about be
clinton and exploded our nation's debt. now after a decade of reckless financial management, the majority is proposing another budget that is unserious as it is extreme. take for example the field of scientific research. more than 50% of our economic growth since world war ii can be attributed to the development and adoption of new technologies. yet the budget proposed drastic cuts to research at the national institutes of health, the national science foundation, the national err naughtics and space administration, among others. as -- err naughtics and space ad-- arow naughtics and space -- a; eronautics and space administration as aamong others. you cannot turn on and off research like a faucet. under the majority's budget that valuable research will be ended and it's important -- and these important discoveries will probably not be made in the united states. the majority wants to impose such cuts on top of the cuts contained in the sequester, even though this effects of the sequester are just beginning to be felt. for example, in the coming weeks, airport control towers will begin to cl
and secretary clinton and now secretary kerry the mandate to push for a two-state solution. it's been difficult. i do think this is a significant visit. his first visit as president and secretary kerry obviously has come earlier and is going to be staying later and doing a little shuttle diplomacy. the palestinians are very skeptical. but i do believe that they would view the president's visit and look for any opportunity to get these talks restarted. of course, they've been on the sidelines, waiting for what they see as a critical issue, the settlements to halt. israelis have said, look, we're ready to talk at any point as long as you don't put p preconditions on these talks. >> i'm glad you brought that up. ambassador, i'm glad you brought that up. really interesting report in "the new york times" today says an internal palestinian memo suggests that president abbas may no longer call for the israelis to publicly state they will halt the settlements. in other words, they're not going to make that a precondition to negotiations anymore. if this is true, would that be a significant development

[applause] >> thank you. thank you, bob. i could feel your distress as john was up here speaking about the -- i was afraid he might refer to the internets, and we might have to give him the hook. john told you he's over 50, i'm slightly over 50. [laughter] and back in our day between was part of the song rockin' robin, remember little michael jackson used to sing that. [laughter] now it has a much more respectable pedigree. [laughter] thank you, all of you, for inviting me here to be with you today. because of what you do every day, fighting to improve the lives of the nation's most vulnerable and underserved consumers, you are my personal heroes, and you set an important
clinton has called this feeling of disbelief on both sides. so i'm still not convinced yet, joe, that this administration wants to go into laborious detail when it comes to trying to broker a peace agreement, particularly because of the threat that iran poses because of whatever the end game is in syria. those concerns may overwhelm. >> let's go to senator coons on syria. just curious in terms of, obviously, the topic of chemical weapons is being raised now as a possibility. the president has called that a game changer. some would say that 70,000 people dead might be that as well. are we talking now about the inevitably come action here, collective or singular? >> yes, mika. i think it's important that the american people be aware that circumstances on the ground in syria continue to change in ways that will move us closer and closer to some sort of multilateral action, particularly if there is a confirmation that the assad regime in syria has used chemical weapons in violation of international law and basic humanitarian rights. i think it was vital that president obama went to

la renta. his fashions have been worn by first ladies, including nancy reagan, hillary clinton, and laura bush. when he was asked in mexico city over the weekend why michelle obama hasn't worn his work, he answered candidly, blaming himself for saying stupid things. >> a relation that started off poorly, well, i don't think will end any differently. >> reporter: in 2009, oscar de la renta criticized mrs. obama for wearing a cardigan when she went to buckingham palace, heeds on more criticism when she wore this dress for alexander mcqueen, a european designer for a state dinner. oscar de la renta did have high praise for the first lady, calling her an extraordinary woman and says she represents her country well. but just as quickly as he praised her, he also seemed to entangle himself in yards of controversy by suggesting the first lady wasn't quite the fashion trend setter everyone thinks, instead it's the everyday woman who sets the fashion tone. >> translator: i've found an anonymous woman walking down the street is a woman who influences fashion today, not a movie star, firs
